Slack Given and Don't Mess with Me!

So much to say! So much to say!

First, who is the jerk that thinks it is okay to hi-jack my blog and advertise his crap! Unacceptable. This world of commericial, buy, buy, sell makes me frustrated when it creeps into my little corner of the internet! Who does he think he/she is? Only I can be a sell out here at Midwestern Position! Only I can make recommendations on how to waste our hard earned cashola! If you have no idea what I am talking about, check out yesterday's comments...with the exception of JA...his comment was totally acceptable and needed. It is nice to be missed. And Dree...I dig your comments too.

After speaking with my friend Steve last night, I have come to the conclusion that I am being too hard on myself in terms of knowing all there is to know about this place. He gave me some perspective and that is always needed. I have been here less than one week and I expected myself to know it all. Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in the US and and it is unreasonable to have a clue on day five.

It is a rare thing when I give myself a break. Cut myself some slack. I am terribly hard on myself.

I realize that my readers might be getting bored with all the move talk...I know I am. So, starting today, maybe tomorrow, I will try to limit the moving stuff.

Hey glad you are there and well! I'm looking forward to hearing about your journey.

How about a few photos :)?

hey silly---

first off, being too hard on yourself is unacceptable. Remember that we all make mistakes, we all need time to adjust to new things, and there is such thing as a learning curve.

Second off, write what you want to write about...write what's in your heart. Don't write what you think others are wanting to read. Anyone that stops by and takes the time to read wants to know YOU and not what you THINK we want you to be! :-)

Finally, wow. Philly is really big and I would be scared out of my mind.

it was nice chatting earlier. take care of yourself in the big city!

I've lived in NYC for four years and I have just recently come to terms with the fact that I will NEVER know all there is to know about this place. I discover new things all the time. Just this week, my friend had a birthday party at the coolest bar - an old barge ship that sits on the Hudson on the West side. I had no idea of its existence and thought, I can't believe I've missed out on this for four years. Anyway, I have a feeling that Philly will be a similar experience. It's too big and ever-changing. Plus, if you read the NYTimes last week, you'll note that it is now being considered the sixth borough by some!
